Fifty-three randomly selected male Ss, 28 HPER majors and 25 Business majors, at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, participated in a study to compare % body fat (BF) and body image (BI) between each major and within each major. % BF was measured by hydrostatic weighing and BI was measured by the Tennessee Self Concept Scale (TSCS) and the Body Cathexis Scale (BCS). The Ss ranged in age from 20 to 24 years. It was concluded that the lack of significant difference in % BF between the two majors could be attributed to the health and fitness atmosphere associated with the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse campus. Furthermore, in these Ss, there was no relationship between %BF and BI.
